Is there anything to be concerned about if you have one eyelid that appears to be lower?

Is there anything to be concerned about if you have one eyelid that appears to be lower?

This way from birth?: People usually don't have perfectly symmetrical faces, so one eyelid can be lower than the other. If a person always had one eyelid lower, from birth or childhood, that is likely normal for him.

An ophthalmologist (eye M.D.) can figure it out. ...Read more
